Reviewed 15 October 2012

We were introduced to Namibia here at the Auas Game Lodge as the first place we stayed. I was very impressed with the friendliness of the staff and how much they wanted to make us feel at home. The food was good, and they catered to my vegetarian request. We enjoyed hiking the trails near the lodge. The highpoint was the afternoon game drive. We did not see this many animals on any other game trip we took. I as absolutely over the moon to end the trip with a family of giraffes. My favorite photo was giraffe at sunset. The rooms were clean. I highly recommend this lodge.

We have have stay here many times but I have never written a review. it is a truly wonderful place the staff are caring, full of fun and laughter. It is peaceful yet there is so much going on. It is one of those places where you can either relax you days away being thoroughly spoilt or spend hours spotting game on their fantastic drives. It really is a beautiful place just to walk, sit and watch. The rooms are set aside from the main building, they are cool and comfortable and have their own terraces. There is outside and inside dining. The pool is in a lovely green setting with plenty of shade if needed. The food is fabulous an unbelievable choice considering how far we are away from a major town. It truly is a magical place that I hope to go back to again very soon!

Room Tip: All of equal quality as far as I am aware.

A friend and I booked for lunch and an afternoon game drive. Our lunch was very well prepared, and we had a lovely afternoon sitting on the terrace, soaking in the view and talking. The meercat orphan the owners were raising was a delight and a big plus. Our game drive was very worthwhile, and we saw almost everything there was to see, including a very large herd of blue wildebeest and the nearly twenty giraffe. It's an easy drive from Windhoek, but feels a world away. We didn't stay overnight, but the rooms and other facilities looked quite nice.

My husband and I took our 13 and 14 year old grandchildren to Namibia and South Africa.

We booked two nights at Auas Game Lodge because it was close to the Windhoek airport. After our first day, we all decided to just stay put as we were all enjoying ourselves so much.

The setting was beautiful. There had been good rain, so the countryside was greener than usual. We walked a lot, and the kids learned how to drive quad bikes. We saw many animals on a game drive - the favourite was the herd of giraffes.

We had adjoining rooms which were cool and comfortable, in a thatched building.

The food was delicious - the kids thought the oryx steak was the best. There were lots of choices at breakfast, about half a dozen choices at lunch, and dinner was set. Some of the vegetables came from the large vegetable garden, all covered in net, and with an impressive series of compost bins that I plan to copy.

There are facilities for small conferences, and it is becoming popular for weddings.

Most important was the happy atmosphere. Staff and management were friendly and helpful.
